Are You Entitled to Compensation?

If you have suffered an injury, either physically or psychologically, that was caused by the negligence of another person or business, you have a right to compensation for the injury. It is important that you consult an experienced attorney to assess your case and determine whether you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.

What Is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

A personal injury lawsuit is a legal action, brought in court, by someone who has been injured (either physically or emotionally) by the negligence of another person or company. The injury could result from an auto accident, slip and fall, or a defective product. Injuries can occur anywhere: at work, on the road, in the hospital, at a restaurant, on the sports field or simply walking down the street.

Personal injury lawsuits are designed to obtain compensation for lost wages, past and future medical bills, pain and suffering. The most common personal injury lawsuits involve car, motorcycle and truck accidents, work-related injuries, dog bites, falling, and/or defective products. These injuries can severely damage a person’s future with a disabling head and brain injury, spinal cord injury, back and neck injury, knee injury, or paralysis.

You have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit if you have suffered an injury or accident when another party may be liable. A personal injury lawyer will attempt to prove that the defendant was negligent and thereby caused an injury to you, the plaintiff.

A personal injury lawsuit can be settled out of court, which will spare you added stress of a trial. If you have a strong personal injury lawsuit, however, you may win a larger settlement through court proceedings. Either way, it is important that an attorney help with your personal injury lawsuit.

The Kansas Statute of Limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the actual date of the accident. If your accident occurred in Kansas, it is important that you contact a Kansas personal injury attorney to ensure that you file your lawsuit within the Kansas Statute of Limitations.
